The ArticleRatings extension adds an interface for rating pages.

This extension was developed for Brickimedia, and is not as portable as it could be. If you need to use it on a separate MediaWiki installation, please don't hesitate to contact me on my Brickimedia talk page.

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download and extract the files in a directory called ArticleRatings in your extensions/ folder. If you're a developer and this extension is in a Git repository, then instead you should clone the repository.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
require_once( "$IP/extensions/ArticleRatings/ArticleRatings.php" );
  • Done! Navigate to "Special:Version" on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
